Alec Cyr of Caribou, pictured during the 2016 team tennis regionals at Hampden, has again helped lead the Vikings back to the regional title match. Tuesday's matches have been moved to indoor venues with Classes A and B set to play at the Maine Pines Racquet and Fitness Tennis Club in Brunswick and the Class C teams headed for the Armstrong Tennis Center in Hampden.

The Maine Principals’ Association is taking a better safe than sorry approach to the high school team tennis regional championships scheduled for Tuesday.

Rather than flirt with rain and wet playing surfaces, Tuesday’s matches in Classes A, B and C have been moved indoors.

Matches in Classes A and B will be played at Maine Pines Racquet and Fitness Tennis Club in Brunswick, while the Class C championships have been moved to the Armstrong Tennis Center in Hampden.

For Class C, the girls match pitting No. 3 Orono (14-0) against No. 5 George Stevens Academy (12-3) is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Teams should report at 12:30.

The Class C boys match between top-seeded GSA (14-0) and No. 6 Washington Academy of East Machias (9-6) is scheduled for a 3:45 p.m. start and teams are asked to report at 3:15.

At Brunswick, the Class A teams get the action started. The No. 1 Lewiston girls (13-1) battle No. 3 Brunswick (12-2) at 9 a.m., followed by the No. 1 Brunswick boys (13-0) and No. 2 Lewiston (12-2) at 11:15 a.m.

In Class B, top seed Camden Hills (14-0) squares off against No. 2 Caribou (14-0) in the girls match at 1:30 p.m. and the No. 2 Camden Hills boys (14-0) battle fourth-seeded Waterville (12-2) at 3:45 p.m.

In each case, teams are asked to report one-half our prior to the match starting time.
